Reflexions on the political and economic Lebanese news.
November 26, 2008.
Preamble: A high school Lebanese student was questioned for the election of President OBAMA. Here is the text.
Barack OBAMA, president of the United States of America.
1 – The 4 November 2008, is a historic day for the United States of America and the world as a result of electing a black man, Barack Obama, as president of the United States of America.
It is a historic and encouraging event for Human Rights to see, for the first time, a black president election, in a democratic way, in the United States of America.
This event has been pleasant to hundreds of millions of blacks throughout the world who hope that this election could rebalance the living standards for poor people, especially for American and African blacks.
2 - The new president, Barack OBAMA, said: “there is not a black America, and a white America, and Latino America and Asian America; there’s the United States of America”.
He has a willingness to defend equal rights and opportunities for better life for all citizens without discrimination based on skin color or origin or culture of the peoples of America. We hope to see him to realize more justice between different classes of peoples of America and probably more justice in the world.
His election will certainly improve respect for human rights, described in the UN Charter.
3 - The change of the blacks’ rights in the United States of America was impressive in 40 years evolution.
The Civil Rights Movement of blacks in the United States of America took place from 1955 to 1965. The leader, Reverend Martin Luther King, led the fight for equal rights between blacks and whites before being murdered by a racist white. Thereafter the U.S. laws have been changed to give civil rights to the blacks, in particular the right to vote and to be treated like white people.
In 40 years, blacks have improved their living conditions but the majority remained poor. Racism has declined but racial discrimination remains rampant, indirect and discreet.
In recent years, it emerged, on the political and sports scenes, some American black personalities very respectable and recognized globally as General Collin POWELL and Ms. Condeliza RICE. The access to the presidency of the United States of America of Mr. Barack OBAMA gives the impression that the United States of America favorably finished a page of its history of racial discrimination against blacks.
